3 Months to the Day!

Last summer was a crazy one job wise. I ended my position at BMI Systems Group out of Arizona after 5 years. I had 2 temp jobs in the summer here in Utah after that but neither one panned out like I hoped they would. I was looking on KSL Classifieds one day and saw a customer service job to apply for. I was a bit hesitant because I'm not a fan of working with a lot of people and I didnt want to get roped into working at a call center. 

Fast forward a bit, they responded to my resume, I got called in for an interview, I got called the same day and offered the job. Passed my drug test (thank goodness they snip a few hairs now for that) and got a desk , computer and phone. Was put on what I now believe (and was told when I started) the best team to be on. My supervisor is great, my teammates/coworkers are pretty nice and I've made a couple friends too. We work hard and get a lot of work orders. My team has won the monthly bonus twice now (once right before I came) and we came |thisclose| to winning in January. It was so close with one of the other teams that the results are still TBD.

I have learned a lot. I have learned to tolerate being on the phone. I have learned how to use NetSuite which is a computer program that all the work orders are on. There is so much more still to learn on that program but I feel like I am navigating it pretty well after 3 months. Thank goodness! I use Google & online maps more than I ever thought I would. I am learning how to work on a team and get along with others in a workplace environment. Cant wait to continue to learn more but I'd be happy doing regular work orders forever! lol

Not being able to wear hats and my sports wear is still tough and I know the no shorts policy in the summer will be hard but it's a trade off that has to happen at this point in my life right now. I know it wont be this way forever. Someday we will live in AZ again (fingers crossed) , someday I might have kids maybe and wont have to work....someday, so many things could happen.

Right now I just feel so blessed and grateful for a job that lets me work overtime occasionally if I want it, that I have a supervisor that understands my need for time off once in awhile and that for the first time ever in my life I'll have benefits.  Even though some days at work are hard and stressful I know this is where I need to be at in my life right now.

Someday (someday again!) I'll own a house in AZ and UT so Tony & I can travel back and forth and live in both states. Or maybe we'll upgrade our teardrop to an airstream and take a year off work to travel around the US.  There are so many options , stay tuned to where life takes me in the future!
